in with michele obama, a portion of michele obama's speech, what did you think of it? >> it was a great speech, it really was. so many personal anecdotes you could visualize. we were talking last week about how ann romney said a lot of great things about mitt romney but never gave you the visuals. john said it best. who in america are in that convention hall -- or in that convention hall watching the speech didn't get the image of a loving father struck with ms, seeing his two children sat the top of the stairs and fighting and struggling to get up those stairs to hug his children at the end of the day or fighting and struggling to get out of bad to go to work to give them a slice of the american dream. it was an absolutely fantastic speech. and the great line, absolutely loved the line, that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> very personal, very revealing but it also might have accomplished something in terms of touching on some key areas that might have needed some work, not that the president, you would think, had a problem with the women's vote. >> right

pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol
